Our Pupil Parliament at Watton at Stone school is a forum through which all the children within the school are given a voice. Pupil Parliament promotes pupil leadership opportunities and develops valuable communication and organisational skills.
All children, from Reception to Y6, are involved in mixed year group meetings that take place every half term. At the meetings the children are able to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environments.
The Year 6 children organise the meetings supported by Mrs Goodman, decide on the agenda and share new ideas. The meetings are also led by Y6 children, who are developing their leadership skills.
Pupil Parliament benefits the entire school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf.
Following the meetings, the children are informed of the changes that will be made as a direct result of their feedback and suggestions.
Our Pupil Parliament give the children the opportunity to explore areas such as:
Do you feel safe at school?
How do you feel about Good to be Green ?
What are some fun ways to raise money for the school?
How can we be an Eco friendly school?
Our next meeting was in November 2022.
As a result of our Pupil Parliament meeting in June:
We will be looking at setting up a committee to talk about establishing a school garden as requested by many children.
